    Soooo... In this AU, WWII is caused by the revolution in Russia of that universe? Also, I assume that revolution happened 20 years later than in real-life?

    Bruh you could have at least used the aerofoil I used on this plane. Uses just 1 part for the curve shape and has the wing for the back.

    @jamesPLANESii yes, I also see what you were asking now, It was getting to the point it was starting to lag out my computer while making this plane so I had to cut corners sadly.
